We’ve slashed the odds on the Royal Baby being named Jack after Prince William potentially dropped a huge hint earlier this week.

Following Aston Villa’s late victory over Cardiff on Tuesday night, Will reportedly joked with fans at the game that he’d name his third baby after the goalscorer, Jack Grealish.

And it’s led to punters up and down the country backing the Prince’s word, forcing bookies to slash odds from 50/1 to just 25/1.

That makes Jack the biggest market mover of the last few weeks, although Albert and Arthur remain the 12/1 favourites if the Duchess of Cambridge is to give birth to another boy.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “He may have been joking, but this could be a huge hint dropped by Prince William and at this stage we’re taking no chances.”
